Sal de Gusano
(Agave worm salt)

Agave worm salt is an essential ingredient in Oaxaca’s gastronomy utilized for cooking and to pair with fruits and other snacks. In addition, it is the ideal companion for mezcal, tequila and other beverages.

The secret of our agave worm salt consists of a careful selection of local peppers and the concentration of the maguey red worm (chinicuiles), resulting in a delicious and versatile salt. It serves as a great season for your dishes whether it be fruits or seafood, it can be served with mezcal and used to create unique cocktails.
